Plug Inn Montmartre by Hiphophostels Paris Hostel Review and Information

Really helpful staff, clean bathroom and bedroom. Beds were made and towels provided. Breakfast was good for the price and lockers for small valuables were also provided. Location was perfect and also not too noisy at night time. Even when we checked out early, the guy at the desk went out of his way to give us a croissant because we were going to miss breakfast. Would recommend - safe for all ages. - Maisie, UK

Dorms have ensuite bathrooms and come in a variety of sizes up to 6 beds. An all-female dorm is available, too. The bunks each have their own lights and plugs, and come with blankets and pillows. The rooms also have other furniture such as tables, desks, and closets for storage, which makes for a nice convenience.
Private Rooms
Private Room $45.55
Private rooms at the Plug Inn have a simple hotel-like feel to them. They come as twins or doubles which are great for couples, or a group of friends can get a room with bunk beds which is similar to a dorm room, but private. All rooms have ensuite bathrooms, too.
Bathrooms
Bathrooms are modern, clean, and have plenty of hot water. You also won't find the push-button showers here, which is nice. The bathrooms can vary in size depending on the selected room, so it's a bit of luck as to which one you get. Hairdryers are included, as are towels.
Common Areas
A small cafe area is on the ground floor. This is where breakfast is served, and it's also a good spot to relax, have some coffee, socialize, and plan your adventures through Paris.

The Location

Montmartre
The historic and delightful Montmartre neighborhood is full of shops, restaurants, and residences all centered around the famous Sacre-Coeur cathedral on the north side of Paris. Wind your way around the old narrow streets, many of which are made of stairs, to find the next hidden gem. Don't forget your camera!
What's Nearby?
What a fantastic location! Just a few blocks away from this hostel is the famous Sacre Coeur cathedral which offers stunning views of the city. Also nearby are plenty of shops, restaurants, bars, theaters, museums, and parks. This is an old and historic neighborhood, and you'll love exploring the narrow streets. The Moulin Rouge is also very close by, even closer than the cathedral.
Nearby Transportation
The Abbesses metro station (line 12) is only 2 short blocks away from the Plug Inn hostel. From here you can get into the city center very quickly, or to the Gare du Nord train station in a matter of minutes. Also, several bus routes run through some of the nearby main roads. Otherwise, you'll probably just want to walk everywhere, as so many things are close by.
